louisiana holiday transit. i finally am getting to spend a little more time in my grassroots of a city, Shreveport. this is where i started trying to become involved in the arts scene. i started selling my art originals in night clubs and other social outings. that all began near the end of 2013. my friend introduced me to the concept you can make money from being good at your artwork. that’s been something i’ve made become my only source of income for four years. i have learn a lot about myself and my value.
2018 is going to bring a lot of new things into my life, career, thinking patterns.
i’m looking to teach my friends and anyone who’s interested in learning some of what guided me to success. my colleague @jwes115 was consulting me and we combined our forces to begin an agency in late 2015. i’m looking to see how we evolve this year,
i want to impact the arts community in a new way that empowers the artist and creates new opportunity for success.
nothing is really too impossible or far out our reach.
today @fauxsherpa and i found a really rad purple light and decided to take some photos with it,
today has been a wild ride. if someone begins doubting your artistry, vision, or project, you don’t have to really explain yourself.
your job as an artist is to passionately create regardless the circumstances. value comes from experience meeting consistency.
my advice is to be cautious of were you put your energy and who you share your moments with.
this new year will be me remaining conscious of where i place my heart, mind, and energy.
surround yourself with people who bring out the best in you and support your vision.
you’re responsible for your success at the same time, you become like those you surround yourself with.
let your thoughts become your reality.
my life is continuously evolving into a new form each day. for one, i have not been too observant of the days, two days mold into my single day now. the new business day is 48 hours. here’s to consistently pushing towards your goals. i give back to the creative community by networking friends with one another based on their craft. we host art shows together and display support through sharing works to our multiple timelines.
this mix of passion, philanthropy, and artisan curator/cult leader drive has shaped a majority of my life. since i was 18 this is pretty much all i know. the arts.
everyday i have been making conscious steps to enhancing my life for improvement. with that i have learned so many qualities of my self that have been attached to the definition of this vessel. these behaviors that define me. upon hitting a new mental understanding since “enlightenment” i have been consciously redefining how my character / person / vessel is perceived.
this was not at all the most pleasant experience. my mind is so far gone from this stream i began tapping into.
i shouldn’t feel bad for relentlessly pursuing pushing my art career to heights that merit respect. i should have been doing this at an earlier age -but i probably would have been riddled with foolishness since growing up, my angst ruled my emotions– i probably would not deserve it, but i know for a fact now the experience should be given a type of credibility if anything. most humans would have given up in this pursuit for mastery of your art. some people have expansive dreams and have yet began following them. it’s not easy- it’s not spelled out- the most you can do is learn from people who are taking the initiative to act. your mind shapes so much of your reality.
there’s so much more happening behind the scenes for me, i am evolving into something entirely new.
